    Brand new pool user...don't even know where to start

    Ok for years we would use a fairly small blow up pool for the kids and empty twice a week, now we got a house and next year will be putting in a built 15' 52" pool from a local pool place, but this year we just put up a Intex 12' 30" ring pool. Well put up a few days ago way unlevel, 2 days later yay...filled up overnight and well we got the pool and filter, we got test strips, we got the pool nice and level and well that's it...I don't even know where to start...our water is nice and clear, the kids did jump in for 30 minutes now I got the filter running and will cover overnight...but what steps should I do now...any help is appreciated. Thanks very much

    Welcome to TFP!

    I don't know where Barre is, but if you plan to take the pool down at the end of the season you can follow this
    Pool School - Guide for Seasonal/Temporary Pools

    If not, then you will need a good test kit like the TF-100 from TFTestkits.net. Here is why it is the best value, Pool School - Test Kits Compared

    While you wait for your test kit do some reading here
    ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry
    And here
